O’Bannon Creek Loveland Ohio
One of our family’s favorite places to visit is the Cincinnati Nature Center. The actual center itself has displays of local flora and fauna. The center also houses an interactive children’s play-scape that is always a favorite for the little ones. There are miles of hiking trails to enjoys the beauty of the woods, ponds, and creeks. For those that are concerned there are a few paved trails for easy wheelchair and stroller access. This weekend they will be hosting several events at the center including (but not limited to) bird banding, hawks/owls/falcons…oh my!, and s’mores and more in the play-scape. The Cincinnati Nature Center is definitely something you don’t want to miss!
